    Canucks sign RW Byron Bitz

    The Vancouver Canucks have signed right wing Byron Bitz.

    Bitz, 27, has recorded 18 points and 51 penalty minutes in 87 career NHL games with the Florida Panthers and Boston Bruins. In five playoff games with the Bruins, the 6'5”, 215 lbs. right winger collected two points and two penalty minutes.

    The Saskatoon, SK, native was originally selected 107th overall by the Boston Bruins in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

    Gillis should be done looking for bottom 6 players. Mancari, Duco, Pinizotto, Bitz, Oreskovich, Ebbet... they could all fill a role on the 4th line. Plus we are bringing Hansen and Lapierre back.

    As of now we have:

    Sedin - Sedin - Burr
    Higgins - Kesler - Sturm
    Hansen - Lapierre - Samuelsson
    6 guys to - Malhotra - fill 2 4th line spots

    plus we still have incumbent AHLers that could fill a 4th line role.

    time to focus on 2nd line players.

    Funny how during the playoffs Gillis said we're not building a team to compete against one team or one team's style of play ... and then every move he seems to make this off-season is to beef up with gritty players to play the Bruins.

    Bitz actually was a good player 2 years ago when he was traded in the deal for Hornton. I don't think he's that bad a player. He's easily at least better than Glass and Bolduc.

    Honestly, this offseason what did Gillis do, he tried to get Ehrhoff signed and he wouldn't. He resigned Bieksa to meet the market and then resigned the other core players in most cases. Sturm doesn't do anything but replace Mason Raymond at this point. I guess the only thing I'm annoyed with is Ballard. But maybe he can trade him mid season for something.
